bonus entry: kitten update...because you asked
I took Mijo off his meds and he was better. However, both of them continued to have runny poo and that is one of the issues of the coccidia--the reason for the meds in the first place. So I put them back on the meds at 1/2 dose (the vet suggested I try that). They tolerate it much better.
Both are eating. Except for the liquid poo, HoneyBoy is seeming to be fine...except for the part where he finds creative litter box alternatives. Mijo is a little bit behind in his recovery. He eats some and I am having to supplement with syringe feeding. However, he knows where the litter boxes are. Yes, boxes.
In addition to their medicine, I give them probiotics and lysine. Mijo also gets eye drops twice a day.
They are a lot of work right now--and they bring much joy with their sweet little beingness.
